San Diego Padres pitcher Cory Luebke will miss the rest of the season.
Luebke will have season-ending surgery later this week. He will have surgery on his injured left elbow.
He has not pitched in a game since April 27th. He is expected to have the surgery on Wednesday, as he repairs a tear in his ulnar collateral ligament.
He had a 3-1 record with a 2.61 ERA this season. He made five starts, before being placed on the 15-day disabled list on May 2nd.
He was moved to the 60-day disabled list on Sunday. The move allowed the Padres to add Matt Palmer from Triple-A.
